Are there any classic novels/plays where an aggressive woman relentlessly pursues a man and forces him to make her his wife?

    People read books for escapism, but you shouldn't use the medium as a replacement for something as irreplaceable as love.
    You need to find a girlfriend, OP.

      I think we all know that, finding the right person is the hard part. Like imagine being an average anon who has no friends, no connections and most likely trust issues that makes it near impossible to initiate and maintain any relationships. Its not hopeless, you might get lucky and some extrovert adopts you but thats highly unlikely

      Your post is a tautology in itself:
      OP wants to read a book like that most probably because he doesn't have a gf and can't find one. People start to write romance novels because they don't have romance.

    Brothers Karamazov. Lisa pursues Aliocha, trying to make him quit his monastic life to marry her, he does that but in the end she loses interest and decides not to marry him.

    • 4 weeks ago

      If you are alluding to Dostoevsky’s worst novels, then, indeed, I dislike intensely The Brothers Karamazov and the ghastly crime and Punishment rigamarole. No, I do not object to soul-searching and self-revelation, but in those books the soul, and the sins, and the sentimentality, and the journalese, hardly warrant the tedious and muddled search. Dostoyevsky’s lack of taste, his monotonous dealings with persons suffering with pre-Freudian complexes, the way he has of wallowing in the tragic misadventures of human dignity – all this is difficult to admire. I do not like this trick his characters have of ”sinning their way to Jesus” or, as a Russian author, Ivan Bunin, put it more bluntly, ”spilling Jesus all over the place." Crime and Punishment’s plot did not seem as incredibly banal in 1866 when the book was written as it does now when noble prostitutes are apt to be received a little cynically by experienced readers. Dostoyevsky never really got over the influence which the European mystery novel and the sentimental novel made upon him. The sentimental influence implied that kind of conflict he liked—placing virtuous people in pathetic situations and then extracting from these situations the last ounce of pathos. Non-Russian readers do not realize two things: that not all Russians love Dostoevsky as much as Americans do, and that most of those Russians who do, venerate him as a mystic and not as an artist. He was a prophet, a claptrap journalist and a slapdash comedian. I admit that some of his scenes, some of his tremendous farcical rows are extraordinarily amusing. But his sensitive murderers and soulful prostitutes are not to be endured for one moment—by this reader anyway. Dostoyevsky seems to have been chosen by the destiny of Russian letters to become Russia’s greatest playwright, but he took the wrong turning and wrote novels.

    there's a story from the Decameron like that

    • 4 weeks ago
      Anonymouṡ

      OP's picture makes me doubt he's going to read any novels or plays, classic or otherwise, but whatever.

      Vanity Fair: Becky Sharp does this although it doesn't really work out for her

      Gone With The Wind: Scarlett does this with her 2nd husband (Frank Kennedy)

      She: Ayesha definitely does this to Holly (starting by killing the woman he's with, haha)

      Hobson's Choice: Maggie is the aggressive one who marries and makes a man of shy boy Willie

      Darling Buds of May: Mariette gets her man (She's not that aggressive to be fair. She just persuades him to chase her.)

      The standard female antagonist in a female-authored female-protagonist romantic novel tries to do this (i.e. steal hero from heroine) but fails. Blanche Dubois in Jane Eyre, Mary Crawford in Mansfield Park, etc.

      >Decameron
      3rd day 9th story.

        Fun fact: in old timey translations of the Decameron they leave the sex parts of that story in Italian untranslated. I own that edition where it’s old timey English and then like three pages of Italian.

      Man I wish, maybe I should write something like that because its all I want. Where are my slop romance novels about yandere/aggressive chicks? I sadly cannot recall a novel I read where that is a central point. Or actual if its a point at all.

      OP here, I assume there's a lot of yandere/femdom webnovels and fanfics, (I found this one on ao3 with a quick google search) but these are mostly slop poorly written by horny teens, which is why I specified classics. A lot of them are over-the-top and have brutal murder scenes where the yandere kills the other girl characters to eliminate competition, or the characters do dumb shit that you would never see in a published novel. So I'll extend my request to include contemporary novels, but it has to be an actual published author.

    That woman in starship troopers, but she doesn't pursue him, she just loves him till her death, unrealistic though. Oh also, scarlet in gone with the wind, mostly it has to do with women's ignorance of their feelings, its almost as if they don't know something until they feel it, so pursuing someone is another way of letting them know that they never loved the person, just the idea of loving a person. Millennium actress too has the same idea.

        i dont really watch much anime, and prefer seinen Manga, but i believe the figure of the "monster woman" is a cultural mountain of dust under Japan's rug.

        I see this author (Tanizaki) as a Boomer, using old fables and traditional stories to lure readers into his rejection of western (specifically US) culture.

        Being chased by an ugly girl is legitimately awful. Guilt and awkwardness mix together to create a truly painful situation.

        I legitimately heard the line "if you don't want to have me that's because you're gay" I'm certainly not a prize but it's humiliating to be pursued only by wretches.

    Tannhauser contains that, with some of the most erotically potent music ever written, in the first scene with Venus and the continual temptation to return to Venus after it. But it also reminds you that such desires are ultimately self-destructive and must perforce give way to to either a treading of terra firma or damnation.
